[1] Internal references show this to date from the late 1960s, no sooner than 1967, but before 1970

[2] There is no evidence of missing content; the error is in the hand-pagination

[3] A presentation of seven texts at the British Museum described as being “most probably from Babylon, although their exact provenance is unknown”. Four of them are categorised as Saros Cycle Texts; the other three as “Texts Containing Astronomical Functions”.

[4] Dated 2001, but this date may relate only to the original printing

[5] This copy appears to have been lavishly rebound thus by a former owner, with gilt print and bands to spine and gilt bordering to boards – unless this was an optional issue by the original publisher, which seems relatively unlikely in view of the original card covers being retained within as well as the relative freshness of the binding for its age

[6] In all, 31 translators are listed by name for this edition

[7] A translation of Books I-V only into modern Spanish, without source text or footnotes, from the 1954 edition of Gerold Hilty, q. v. above

[8] A further credit reads: “Textes rassemblés avec la collaboration d’AndréBuisson”.

[9] An additional credit reads: “Ouvrage publié avec le concors du Conseil Scientifique de l’Université Jean-Moulin – Lyon III, du Service Régional de l’Archéologie de Lorraine, du Conseil Général des Vosges, et de Électricité de France”.

[10] This first printing is produced in a very small equal-spaced font that appears reduced from A4 sheets output by a 1980s-era home computer printer. The book was reset in a later A.F.A. printing of the 2000s.

[11] A series of publications edited at this time by H. Daiber and D. Pingree

[12] This volume presents an edition and English translation of the Arabic source text based on the British Library manuscript Add. 7490, followed by an edition and English translation of the Latin source text based on the 12th century British Library manuscript Sloane 2030

[13] The three additional editors named on this edition are credited with “Historical and Technical Annotations”. Yamamota and Yano have notably been removed from the credit list in the original edition, perhaps because their contributions were to the editing of the source text and not to the English translation featured here

[14] A popular edition, annotated by a team of astrologers, of a revision of Burnett’s English translation of the Arabic source text only, extracted from the original Brill volume above. The translation has been revised with reference to Burnett’s English translation of the Latin edition where it fills lacunae in Burnett’s translation of the incomplete Arabic source text.

[15] After the first edition thus of 1997

[16] A very long-running series of critical editions of ancient Greek and Latin texts, edited at this time by Johannes Irmscher

[17] A critical edition of the ancient Greek text of Abu Ma’Shar’s treatise on solar revolutions

[18] Appears to be a facsimile reproduction of the edition first published in 1488. The original work is said to have been written by Abu Ma’Shar around 874

[19] An inexcusable binder’s error. Received new thus directly from the distributor. The book has since gone out of print; and this volume is currently irreplaceable.

[20] A series of publications edited by H. Daiber and D. Pingree

[21] This volume contains the Arabic text with facing English translation (pp. 2-565), followed by a study entitled “Sources and Doctrines”, and preceded by an introduction

[22] “Latin text edited by Ch. Burnett[;]and Arabic-Latin, Latin-Arabic Glossaries by K. Yamamoto & Ch. Burnett”

[23] A series of publications edited by H. Daiber and D. Pingree

[24] This volume comprises a critical edition of the Latin text, showing the variant readings of different versions (pp. 3-317); an edition and English translation of some additional ‘long notes’ found in two of the Latin versions (pp. 320-339); a few short ‘related texts’ (pp. 342-351); extensive Arabic-Latin and Latin-Arabic glossaries (pp. 354-556), and indices

[25] The only volume to appear in this series. The projected Part I of the translation would presumably have become Volume I of the Medieval Track if it had been released

[26] This “colloque” is said to have been held under the presidency of Emile Poulat (CNRS-EHESS)

[27] This volume is a collection of ten essays by different scholars: six on the theme of “Astrologie et Pouvoir” (one of which is by Jacques Halbronn); and four presented under the banner of “Études”, on miscellaneous topics, chiefly with esoteric connections. The volume concludes with 25 pages of book reviews and 3 pages of obituaries
